Day 13...

Today was  suppose to be Chocolate covered bacon day...  and I just heard you gag... have you ever TRIED chocolate covered bacon? This is not your momma's bacon- let me tell you! I get my bacon from the butcher, its not smoked (but I guess it could be) and then I bake it in the oven until crispy. I melt my chocolate (again doesn't matter what flavor chocolate) and dip my cooled bacon in it - add alittle sprinkles and let cool again... it doesn't last long here. Heck,  neither does bacon for breakfast!

 Nonetheless, I managed to serve up some little pretzel chocolate kisses, pecan bites... I do not have a name for them, I just know that they are delicious.

This is the closest thing to looking girly I get. I do not have a knack to make frilly girly stuff. I guess I am a simple gal like that. I enjoyed making these little bags, since they were simple and small. The inside has 1 1/2 of space.  To me - this is grand space for items... maybe even fudge could fit in there! WAHOO!  

Quick Tutorial: The cardstock is 3 x 9 3/4, score long (9 3/4) piece at 3, 4 1/2, 7 1/2. To make the V  flap -measure 1 inch from the 7 1/2 score line and pencil on both sides. Find the center (1 1/2) amd mark, cut on angle , this forms the flap. Decorate.

I like these little bags, I have about 4 candies (square pretzels treats) in these and that is just enough for a little Valentine!

And last but not least is the BLOG CANDY!... Just leave me some love, and your name will be entered for the blog candy. Winner will be announced on Tuesday, February 15

Have a great day!

Hug the ones you love!

Thanks for stopping by!

Well the way I look at it everything tastes good with chocolate!! But alas, I'm still not going to buy it, because I would eat it all (and probably in one setting). I have worked to hard to wean myself to start up again. But the good news is I can still make your gorgeous bags -- thank you for the directions (love how the flap goes over).

I've been wanting to try chocolate dipped bacon; love the salty/sweet combination. My husband thinks it is a waste of good bacon!!!

So did you like it?
